As Gov. Christie's pricey pettifogger was rambling on today about his million-dollar benefactor's innocence, I raced in wheezing anticipation to see how Fox News was covering this laughably meaningless story. I was not disappointed. There, in the lower third, was the Breaking News brief: "GOV CHRISTIE CLEARED OF ANY WRONGDOING."
Even better was the NY Times' coverage. The aforementioned pettifogger, reported the Times, revealed that "Mr. Wildstein and Ms. Kelly evidently had 'an ulterior motive' [for closing the GWB lanes], but the investigation could not determine what it was."
Indeed, had Gov. Christie handed me a million bucks to not determine mysterious motives in an empty investigation of no legal weight whatsoever, I suspect I would have been unofficially baffled, too.
